  1. This is heartbreaking and the siblings/grandparents raising the children of parents who have died deserve some financial support. Or at leasr education how to access the social security survivor benefits that are due to the children of deceased parents.

  2. This story was a good story but the lady interviewing so insensitive she ruined the mood of the story. She really seemed like she didnโ€™t care I wonder if they forced her to do the story?

  3. As the oldest of five, I was the only one working when my mom was injured at work. It was stressful for my mom and me but at least we knew she would be ok eventually. These are true kings and queens, they stand up for their families when they were all clearly heartbroken.

  4. This is heartbreaking. I work for our tribe as part of a funeral committee. We get together and make a final meal in honor of those who have passed away. We have seen first hand how those with covid are buried for almost a year we didn't have actual burials only cremations to avoid spreading the disease. It's one of the hardest things I've seen with families not getting a proper goodbye/ burial. Sending lots of prayers and love to all the people out there who've lost someone or been horribly affected by covid-19.๐Ÿ™โค

  5. the interviewer was highly insensitive and prodding. "you had a birthday cake I assume.. what'd you wish for…" she was definitely fishing for something sad. I'm disgusted.

  6. God bless all of you ๐Ÿ™
    I survived C-19 by God's grace
    This hits home because I have 7 kids
    I do have two life insurance plans that I got 10 years ago.
    That will take care of my kids for at least
    10 or 8 years.

  7. This interviewer is awful, heartless and just baiting to get an emotional response. She has cause more trauma to these kids with her statements and questions.

  8. He didnโ€™t want to go to hospital? He didnโ€™t want to leave how kids? No, thatโ€™s not rational, one gets treatment if you want to stay for your kids. Was this an immigration issue or fear he had?

  9. Wow this is beyond heartbreaking. Can't imagine loosing both parents. After my mom passed it was extremely tough on my dad and I. The good thing is that at least the older siblings have stepped in. Who knew this disease would cause such devastation? Can't wait for my dad to get vaccinated.

  10. So much love for these guys!!!! I can't even fathom the grief they are going through. Wish I could hug all of them. You parents gave you a good start; keep it going! You are good people, and you can keep it going together! Make them proud, I know they still watch over you!

  11. Life insurance people…So that your family will be taken care of๐Ÿ˜ข.. God watch over them ๐Ÿ™.
